BE A SMART TAXI PASSENGER
Please record the taxi registration number or information on the Taxi Driver Identity Plate (e.g. taxi driver identity plate number) if you have compliment or comment on taxi service. On the other hand, you can ask for a machine-printed fare receipt. It is an offence if taxi drivers refuse, without reasonable excuse, to issue receipts to passengers upon request. In case the receipt printing device fails to operate, the taxi driver should issue a hand-written receipt. Please note that passengers shall pay taxi fare as recorded by the taximeter in accordance with the law.
